Gov. Ron DeSantis and lawmakers funneled more than $100 million in taxpayer dollars this year to expand Florida's school voucher programs. Among the schools eligible to receive that money is Covenant Christian School, accused of forcing out a teacher for being gay.
The Palm Bay school and others that are part of the program are not only allowed to discriminate against LGBTQ staff but they can expel or deny admission to LGBTQ students and children of same-sex parents. That's perfectly legal under the state program that pays for students to attend a private school instead of a public one.
